40 Gifts For Social Justice Activists That Are Beyond Thoughtful
2020 has reignited our inner activist like no other year. From learning about Covid-19's disproportionate impact on low-income communities to watching the devastating George Floyd video, then living through the subsequent civil unrest, we've awakened to gross inequalities, and in large numbers, committed to making a change.
Some of us have done so by raising awarenesses on social platforms, donating to social justice organizations, having uncomfortable conversations at work, and reading books, while others have attended protests and fought on the ground. This kind of work almost never ends, and the dedication can take its toll on those who are actively engaged.
This holiday season (and beyond), why not treat the activists in your life to the gifts of motivation, relaxation, healthy skin or self-care? Whether it's precious memorabilia, some sleep-inducing products or educational books, these heartwarming ideas will be sure to delight.
